Goodman Ltd, acting on behalf of Taylor Woodrow Property Co Ltd, commissioned Oxford Archaeology North (OA North) to undertake an archaeological evaluation at land off Crewe Road, Basford West, Crewe, Cheshire. The site is proposed for redevelopment as warehousing and distribution, manufacturing and light industrial/office use and associated ancillary works (planning application reference P03/1071). Crewe and Nantwich Borough Council has granted planning permission with a condition requiring a programme of archaeological evaluation based on the results of a geophysical survey undertaken predetermination (GSB 2003), following an archaeological desk-based assessment carried out in 2002 (OA North 2002). It is possible that archaeological remains associated with a medieval or post-medieval agricultural landscape may be affected by the proposed development. Therefore, in order to establish the nature and extent of any buried remains, and inform any requirement for mitigation, OA North carried out the archaeological evaluation in November 2008.
